Hannibal is back and the cast and crew are celebrating by wearing floral crowns

I do love Hannibal. Clearly the best new series this year, it’s clever, disturbing, beautiful to look at and filled with wonderful dialogue. I’d recommend getting it on Blu-Ray in the US, at least (extra features: Commentary from the Cast and Crew, Gag Reel, Deleted Scenes, Unrated Episodes, Symphony of a Slaughter), although it’s not such an obvious buy in the UK (extra features: First Look Featurette, Forensics 101 Featurette).

Thankfully, despite getting some really crappy ratings in the US on NBC, it’s been renewed for a second season and filming is just about to begin. So everybody in the cast and crew is celebrating… by wearing floral crowns.

    I wonder what its prospects are if ratings weren't great. It doesn't feel like an NBC show. I am very glad it's been renewed though.

  • Well, they're not great, but it's a cheap because of all the co-production money. Plus it's NBC and poor ratings more or less go with the turf, particularly for mid-season replacements. So fingers crossed and all that, but it's not necessarily doomed
